Summary


Bestselling author Tammi Sauer's characters are both lovable and mischievous. In I Love Cake!, the first picture book featuring irrepressible Moose, orderly Rabbit, and fun-loving Porcupine, Rabbit plans a fabulous birthday party with fun activities and a delicious cake. Porcupine and Moose come to enjoy Rabbit's big day, but everything goes south when impulsive Moose loses control of his appetite!

With hilarious bits of dialogue throughout, I Love Cake! is not only a dynamic read-aloud, it works as an inspiration for a short play. Themes of friendship and forgiveness come through on every page--and the birthday theme makes I Love Cake! an excellent choice for a birthday gift!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Do you love cake? You probably love cake. But you might not like cake as much as Moose loves cake. In fact, Moose's inordinate love of cake creates something of a tragic situation at Rabbit's birthday party: he tried to take just one bite to make sure the birthday cake was OK, but, as he exclaims, is it my fault my mouth's so big that the whole cake kind of fell right in? He apologizes, but Rabbit is still mad, and their friend Porcupine is pretty cranky, too. What's a contrite Moose to do? Laid-back language and a subtle rhythm all three characters make small comments in speech-bubbles on each page make this happy-go-lucky picture book fun to read aloud. Rozelaar's loose, brushstroke-heavy digitally colored artwork nicely fits the tone of the text, while each character's googly eyes roll just right to express all the emotions of a grave misdeed, its consequences, and the joy of reconciliation. For more moose mishaps, check out Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen's Duck, Duck, Moose! (2014).--Willey, Paula Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Nothing brings buddies together-or potentially splits them up-like cake. In this good-natured friendship tale, Rabbit, Porcupine, and Moose are the best of pals, fitting comfortably into their respective roles. "I'm good at being the boss," says Rabbit. "I'm good at having fun," says Porcupine. "I'm just Moose," says Moose, the jokester of the bunch. When Rabbit throws herself a birthday party, Moose can't think about anything but cake, and his sweet obsession leads to a party disaster, a reluctant mea culpa, and an attempt to make amends. Sauer (Roar!) sprinkles humorous asides from the characters between the straightforward narration that moves the story along. Moose's confessional monologue, which appears in a page crammed with all-caps text, is laugh-out-loud funny ("Is it my fault my mouth's so big that the whole cake kind of fell right in?" he wails). In mixed-media art accented with candy hues, Rozelaar's (Don't Call Me Sweet!) wide-eyed critters match the buoyancy of the story with playfully expressive faces and body language. Ages 4-8.
